Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0670035688, Hardcover)Papa and I are traveling salesmen. We sell signs, neon signs, the ones that light up a shop, a street, a whole town. Someday I'm going to sell a million signs.
Imagine a time when salesmen still traveled from door to door . . . a time when one of those fancy new neon signs really made a difference at a restaurant or a shop. Then picture a little girl and her dad-traveling salesmen-packing up their convertible with the latest in neon signs, ready to hit the road for a full day of calling on customers. First stop, Sophie's Diner, then on to Kelly's Market, and then the last stop-Mr. Hansen's Drugstore, where our own young salesperson sells her very first sign!
This satisfying story is bursting with intriguing details of small-town American life in the early 1950s. Extraordinary illustrations evoke both Norman Rockwell and Robert McCloskey.
Illustrated by Bagram Ibatoulline
